‘The Queen Latifah Show’ Lays Off Staff, Cites Budget Concerns


‘The Queen Latifah Show’ Lays Off Staff, Cites Budget Concerns
“The Queen Latifah Show” is out with the old and in with the new.

According to the New York Post, the award-winning talk show let go of staffers last week in efforts to cut costs. An insider said the daily program was “hugely over budget” last season and needed a trim.

“While some put the number of layoffs as high as 20, an insider insisted there were only five,” Page Six reported.

A Latifah rep added, “As with any show . . . we have experienced turnover in a small number of positions in response to the creative evolution of the show, most of which have since been filled.”



“The Queen Latifah Show,” which was recently renewed for a second season, won the award for Best New Talk Show at the 2014 People’s Awards.
